Liverpool vs Newcastle: Brilliant Dejan Lovren volley provokes ‘It’s our year’ reaction from fans
Unlikely goalscorer Dejan Lovren gave Liverpool the lead against Newcastle in emphatic fashion on Boxing Day.
After a questionable defensive header fell to him inside the penalty area, 29-year-old leathered home a half volley even Steven Gerrard would have been proud of.
Lovren’s goal came after just eleven minutes into the Reds’ home fixture, which is the 19th game of the season and marks the halfway stage in the title race.
Jurgen Klopp’s men led the way by four points before kick off and finished it six points clear of rivals Tottenham Hotspur and seven ahead of Man City, provoking plenty of excitement among supporters who are starting to believe this may finally be the year the Premier League trophy comes to Anfield.
Now that Dejan Lovren has started scoring stunners as well, the fans seemingly cannot contain themselves. You can read a round-up of the reaction below.
